The most useful gift for my expecting friends & me!

Finally a book that is informative/non-judgemental on a variety issues, concise (which is extremely useful if the little one is already here!)and very enjoyable to read. Life After Baby really explores thoughfully pre-baby concerns, post-baby jitters, marriage questions, the issue of siblings, work choices...the bottom line is the book covers a wonderful spectrum. As a mother of two that enjoyed her professional career before children, this book helped me sort out what I wanted to do for my family at this time. I hope this helps other potential readers. Enjoy!

Life After Baby: What it's really like!

Life After Baby is an invaluable resource for new mothers and mothers of young children. I wish this book had been around when my son was born! (He is now 5.) Unlike other books about motherhood that stick with the facts, try to allay concerns or answer a myriad of questions, Life After Baby is about how it feels to be a mother--and all the attendant joys and fears. The author interviewed lots of women and brings their voices to the pages. Their experiences, their questions, their beliefs, their confusion, their love, all spill out from the chapters. I found the book thought-provoking and as I read it I felt less alone, less isolated. Motherhood is so exhausting and after reading this I felt energized. I highly recommend it for anyone who has pondered the meaning of motherhood! It would make a great gift for a new mom.
